The Academic University Sports Federation (FADU) is a Sports Federation which focuses on sport as a tool for training and education and it was born of a movement of several academies of the country aiming to invigorate, stimulate and organize the sport within higher education.
It is assumed as a multi-sports association that intends to foster competition, conviviality and exchange of students from various higher education institutions within and outside Portugal, through the various modalities. It also intends to encourage the competitive spirit, teamwork and fair play by inducing healthy living habits in the academic community. Currently FADU has about 7000 practitioners distributed by 25 modalities.
Founded on March 2, 1990, it is equipped with Sport Utilities since 1995, having grown over the years both in terms of organized activities, and in its number of participants. Nowadays FADU is regarded as one of the greatest sports federations in our country.
Throughout its existence, FADU has sought to win national and international credibility. Proof of this is the participation of FADU as an associate member in the Olympic Committee of Portugal (COP), in Portugal Sports Confederation (CDP), in Portugal Paralympic Committee (PPC),in the European University Sports Association (EUSA) and in the International University Sports Federation (FISU).
It should be noted that, in a short period of time, Portugal was chosen to organize 5 World University Championships, 8 European University Championships, of FISU Forum 2004 (in the European Year of Education through Sport) and of EUSA Symposium 2005 (during the celebrations of the International Year of Sport and Physical Education).
